Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: WATKINS GLEN !!!

the soundcheck jam is one of the best pieces of music to come out of '73. the rest of the 'soundcheck' show on 7/27 is pretty nice too, including a mellow, dreamy bird song with keith stepping up very nicely. as for the actual 7/28 watkins glen show itself...ehhh. sorry guys but i have my reservations about this one. the china>rider is terrible, jer must be dosed out of his mind, because it's as sloppy and incoherent as they come. this show just dosen't seem to have 'it' the way the likes of 2/15, 3/24, and 11/17 do, or even some of the other really hot spring/summer shows like 5/26 and 6/22. i'm not saying it's a train wreck or anything, just not one of my favorites. a dissenting opinion i guess...
